On the Farm

Every three months I head out to a small town in Illinois called Walsh.  Most people haven't heard of Walsh, me included until Kelsey and Joel moved there.  They restored/renovated/loved his grandparents house make to life. 

 The drive out to their house is one of my favorites. I live in a small town in Illinois as well (Smithton) but the drive to their farm is so peaceful and relaxing. It takes me about 45 mins to an hour depending on how many farm vehicles I get stuck behind!

I head out to walsh to take their adorable son pierces' pictures.  This visit was no exception on how i not only love this location but how much i love this little family.  As a family photographer you fall in love with your clients that you see throughout the year.  I have known Kelsey & JOel for 8 years I believe,  I was their wedding photographer. THIS VISIT WAS FOR PIERCES' 9 MONTH SESSION.  I CAN'T BELIEVE HE IS 9 MONTHS, I FEEL LIKE IT WAS JUST YESTERDAY WE DID HIS NEWBORN SESSION AT THEIR OLD HOUSE IN COLLINSVILLE AND KELSEY ASKED ME TO BRING MY VACUUM CLEANER BECAUSE THEIR BROKE!!

Kelsey is great, always up for a more casual lifestyle type session. 

To say that I love their kitchen would be an understatement.  The natural light, and the farm house sink, is a lifestyle photographers dream!  Add a cute kid and it's a photographers playground!  I am pretty sure I could have just taken pictures here all day!
